The vote on the resolu tion was unanimous in one branch, and but two voices were raised against it in the other. This tribute was participated in by gentle men of all the political parties. On Saturday evening last "a preparatory meeting was held in Philadelphia, to extend to the Senator from Illinois a publie recep tion on his arrival in Philadelphia. The Secretary of the Treasury has adver tised for proposals, to be received until the 24th of January next, for a loan - of ten mil lions dollars, under the act of Congress pass ed in June last. Robert M . . Riddle, who had been for many years editor of the Commercial Journal at Pittsburgh, died in that city on Saturday last. The trial of Allibone and Newhall, officers of the exploded Pennsylvania Bank, charged -with conspiracy to defraud creditors of the Bank, has resulted in a verdict of not guilty. The official vote for Governor, at the late election in New York, was as follows : E. D. Morgan, Rep., A. J. Parker, Dem., L. Burrows, Am., - - - - Gerrit Smith, 4b. and Tern., - - The Past and the Future. The Pittsburgh Journal, of a late date con tains some interesting facts in relation to the rapid increase of the population of the United States, but more particularly in the West and North West, and the change of political power which the census of 1860 will develope, in favor of that portion of the Union. The fact is stated that though the centre of popu lation was near Washington city it has since been gradually, and at a rapid rate, moving westward nearly on a straight line towards Council Bluffs, lowa. .The present centre is said to be near the south-western corner of Pennsylvania, and the next will probably be near Zanesville, Ohio. We suppose that af ter ten or twenty years more, this line will run nearly due west, on about the 40th par allel of latitude. This would carry it near Springfield, in Illinois, through Northern Mis souri and Kansas. It is quite apparent that westward the march of empire takes its way. If, moreover, a Pacific Railroad should he es tablished, an extraordinary impulse would be given to emigration towards the Pacific. New Territories would be organized, addi tional States would be called into existence, and villages, towns and cities would start up by hundreds, and as if through the agency of magic. This country is yet in its early youth. We are not a century old in a na tional sense ; and judging the future by the past, what is likely to be our condition a cen tury hence, or in 1958 ? The imagination must be bold and daring that would attempt to foresee or predict. But one melancholy fact connected with the subject, that the mil lions who now move upon the face of the re public will with a few rare exceptions, have passed to their long resting place. And yet, how many live as if there were no end to human existence. Alas ! what shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue. The very growth of this republic forms a forcible illus tration of -the ever-changing character of men and things.. But the other day, com paratively speaking, the American Declara tion of Independence was promulgated to the world, and now, all the " Signers" sleep the last long sleep of death, while the scat tered and sparsely populated colonies which they organiZed into free and independent States, have become one of the mightiest na tions on the face of the earth. Nevertheless "!passing away" is - Written upon everthing that is human. EIGHT CHILDREN _LTA MIRTH.—About five months since, the wife of Jacob Abbott, living ten Miles west of Golconda, Pope county, Ohio, presented her husband with eight pledges of affection at one birth ! Four of these children survived until some six wee ks since, when two of them sickened and died. The remaining two are still living and thriving finelyy. The whole eight were very small specimens ,of, humanity when ushered into the world,. The Harrisburg Telegraph says that the Territory of Arizona, which has hitherto en gaged but little public attention, is likely to prove as attractive to fortune-hunting emi grants as California itself, and that, too, at no distant day. For, according to Lieut. Mowry, who came passenger by the last over land mail, there is a marvellously rich gold region on the river Gila. The worthy Lieu tenant left two hundred and fifty men there, all washing or digging for gold. In another portion of the Territory, there is abundance of silver, and a company formed there ob tained one thousand ounces of the pure metal per week. The embryo Territory is im mensely rich in . mineral wealth, and will rapidly fill up and become a State. So we go. And when Sonora and Chihuahua, both rich in gold, shall be added to our republican family, we will be in a condition to supply mankind with the precious metals, and "offo diuntur opes" will be the industrial motto of our - western brethren. It should bore be mentioned, en passant, that iron, copper, and lead abound in Arizona, as well as gold and and silver, but these are regarded as barely worth notice, when placed along side the " root of all evil." This, however, is a vile libel of the ancients on the rich, brilliant, and shining product of the mines, for it is a really bountiful source of good, .in deeds of charity and in encouraging the arts and man ufactures of a country, when in the hands of virtuous, liberal, energetic and worthy men. Success, therefore, to auriferous and argent Arizona ! BY THE COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT. To the Teachers of Huntingdon county : You are respectfully invited to assemble in a County Institute at Huntingdon, which will open on Monday the 27 inst., and continue three days. In issuing this, my first call for a County Institute, I am aware of the inconvenience to you,—the tax upon your time and resources; but it is sincerely hoped that you will have nothing to regret in thus assembling to delib erate upon our educational interests, and the advancement of our most interesting pro fessions. The Professional Educator may now magnify his office, and look forward with * high hopes, to that just recognition which its own intrinsic merits will ever claim for it. He is the master of mind, morals and learning—the producer of thought—the guar dian of queries—the benefactor of his race. If this be true, science, art and discovery should inspire all his efforts ; and the love of them should urge him on to the highest en joyment which his profession can realize. The activity of genius is unlimited, knowl edge abounds as an .abundant harvest; and he who gathers and gives most, wears the fairest laurels, gains the highest eminence, and bears the mightiest sceptre. Will our teachers consider these things—look forward to the future and then join in the progressive movement which alone renders the teacher eminent. 247 953 - 230 441 60 880 5 470 Our Institute will be in the hands of the teachers, for them to render useful and cred itable. Experienced teachers and others will be present to lecture upon most interesting subjects. Reports will be read, and laid be fore the Institute for discussion. Our county is favored with many good educators, several of whom have signified their intention to aid us in this enterprise. I invite you one and all, my fellow teachers, to come- and make the cause your own. Jizniata district.—New School ; Tho. B.

EXTRACTS FROM MY NOTE BOOK.. CORRESPONDENCE OF THE, GLOBE. Letter from Nebraska Territory. COLUMBUS, NEBRASKA TERRITORY, 1 November 5, 1858. Mu. LEWIS :—Enclosed you will find a specimen of Cherry Creek gold, which, being exhibited to your numerous patrons, may in duce some of them to seek their fortunes in the newly discovered gold regions of Kansas and Nebraska. The specimen was procured from Capt. Smith, (formerly of Pennsylvania) who started. for the mines last September, and has recently returned for provisions and mining utensils. In a conversation that I had with him, he told me that miners were making from four to ten dollars per day, and that thus far, the labor of the miner has been more of a prospecting nature than any thing else. lie also told me that twenty dol lars per day can be made in the Spring, which is properly the mining season, and by that time there_ will be a better supply of mining tools. Aurora is the name of a town that has lately been laid out at the mouth of Cherry Creek ; it contains at present, about sixty houses. Flour is brought from Mexico, and sells at from eight to ten dollars per hundred weight- The distance from Omaha to the mines by the North Platte route, is 580 miles. This is the route that is so highly recommended by Col. Lander, for the Pacific Railroad. It is also the road preferred by the great mass of emigrants, and is spoken of very highly by those who have traveled it. Persons wish ing to go to the mines should start early, as there will be a general " stampede" for the diggings in the Spring. C. A. S. From Washington-- : Difficulty between Congressmen English and Montgomery, &c. WASHINGTON CITY, Dee. IB.—A difficulty occured this morning between Congress men English, of Indiana, and Montgomery, of Pennsylvania on Pennsylvania, Avenue. The two members of Congress happened to meet for the first time this session, when Mr. English, extending his hand, said, "flow are you, Mr. Montgomery ?" Mr. Montgomery withheld his hand and uttered insulting ex pressions, something like "I don't speak to puppies ;" whereupon Mr. English 'struck him a severe blow over the head, breaking his cane to pieces by the blow, and knocking him into the gutter, but not entire ly down. Montgomery, on rising, hurled a brick at English, striking him on-the boot, but doing nu injury to him, Mr. English states to his friends that he was entirely un armed, and was not aware that Mr. Mont gomery had any ill-feeling toward him up to the time of the recontre. Mr. Montgome ry, _as to strength and size, is superior to Mr. English. Several prominent Mexicans held a consul tation last night in regard to that part of the President's Message. recommending the mili tary occupation of Chihuahua and Sonora.— Gen. Frias and Admiral Zerman, who were of the number, left to day for Mexico,•te augurate, itis said, an opposition to such a movement. A caucus is being held to-night of such members of Congress as are favorable to the pension bill for the soldiers of the war of 1812, with the view of making such arrangements as will tend to effect its pasage. HORRIBLE EXECUTION.—The Chinese, among other unique punishments, sometimes sen tence a man to be executed by depriving him of sleep. A recent letter from a Brit ish resident gives the following account of a Chinese merchant, who, being convicted of murdering his wife, was condemned to this torture : " The condemned was placed in prison un der the care of three of the police guard, who relieved each other every alternate hour, and who prevented the prisoner from falling asleep, night or day. He thus lived for nine teen days without enjoying any sleep. At the commencement of the eighth day, his suf ferings wore so intense that he implored the authorities to grant him the blessed opportu nity of being strangulated, guillotined, burned to death, garrotted, shot, quartered, blown up with gunpowder, or put to death in any con ceivable way which their humanity or feroci ty could invent. This will give a slight idea of the horrors of death from want of sleep. PROFUSION 01? GOLD AND SILVER.—The ag gregate amount of gold and silver taken from the mines in different parts of the world an nually reaches the enormous sum of three hun dred and ninety-nine millions. It will nat urally be asked what becomes of this vast sum. The fact is that since the discovery of the vast quantities of gold in California and Australia, the consumption of gold and sil ver for household purposes has increased in an equal proportion, and valuable plate in the houses of those in good circumstances is now universal in this country. The Scientif ic American, in giving the yield of these pre cious-metals from the different sources, says, that the amount of gold and silver annually taken from the mines of Europe is valued at twenty-five millions of dollars. In America, the yield is computed to be one hundred and forty-six millions, and Asia produces twenty five millions. Africa has no silver mines, but produces gold to the amount of nearly three millions of dollars. Australia is also without silver, but produces gold to the large amount of two hundred millions. A PI RE SPI TTE R.-A simple old man named James Nipple, residing near Mifflin town, Pa., was awakened on the night of the Bth inst., by a noise in his bed room, and was no little surprised and alarmed to see a hideous looking ruffian standing by his bed side and brandishing a huge club over his head. He was so frightened' that he lay speechless, until the ruffian said "If you don't give me up your money, every cent of it, I'll spit fire all over your house." The imminent danger with which his premises were threatened, restored to him the facul ty of speech, and he.quicklygasped out, "Oh, don't burn my house down and I'll give you all my money!" Mr. N. then got up and gave him all his money, amounting, it is said, to between $2OO and $3OO all in gold and sil ver. In consideration of his kindness, the ruffian then vamosed, without "spitting fire all over the house." A Dispensation from the Pope. The Washington correspondent of the Bos- . ton Traveler has the following relating to a dispensation granted by the Pope through American official influence : " While the papers are full of comments on Gen. Cass' letter of refusal to interfere in the Mortara, affair, on the ground that 'it is the setted policy of the United States to ab stain from all interference in the internal concerns of other countries,' it may be well to ventilate' a rumor now current in this city. It is said that the daughter of a highly respectable family of this city (in which, by the way ex-President Pierce was quite inti mate,) took the veil at the convent in the ad jacent city of Georgetown, and that after a while she found the vows distasteful, and that by the personal, if not official, interference of President Pierce, Major Lewis Cass, Jr., minister near the Court of Rome, was in duced to interest himself in the matter, and by his personal intercession with the Pope, to obtain a dispensation,' which has released the young nun from her vows, and has al lowed her to again enter the world. If this be so, and it has obtained credence among many, it would appear that 'intervention' can be practiced whenever there is sufficient occasion for its exercise." A NICE WOMAN.—The wife of Morrissey the prize fighter, who is said to be the daugh ter of a wealthy man in Troy, N. Y., won $2OOO on the result of the fight with Heenan, and his father-in-law won $BO,OOO l A nice family, take them all around l That a loving wife might wish her husband to be successful in what he undertakes in a decent way is per fectly right and natural, but for to bet on the success of her husband in brutal and black guard fights is rather an arrangement of "so ciety" that we don't understand. Yet we understand enough to believe that Mrs. Mor risey in a very fashionable, upheaded and brainless, "circle," is considered some, if not more. So wags the world, and the people, it would seem must wag with it, or be lost in the "under fog." A woman betting on a prize fight I Well we give in. A BEAUTIFUL INCIDENT.—A lady visiting New York city, saw one day, on the side-walk, a ragged, cold, and hungry little girl, gazing wistfully at some cake in a shop window. She stopped, and taking the little one by the hand, led her into the store, though she was aware that bread might be better for the child than cake; yet, desiring to gratify the shiv ering and forlorn one, she bought and gave her the cake she wanted. She then took her to another place where she procured her a shawl and other - articles of comfort. The grateful little creature looked the benevolent lady full in the face, and with artless simplic ity asked, "Are you God's wife." A. MAN WITH THE HEART ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF Ills BODY.—At Cincinnati, a day or two ago, a man died, who had been for some months an inmate of one of the hospitals and whose disease had exhibited such peculiar and unknown symptoms as to baffle the great est skill of the best physicians. Under the circumstances, it was deemed advisable to make a post mortem examination, when it was found that in the diaphragm was a large hole, and that the intestines had been forced up and had pressed the heart from its natu ral position over to the right side of his body, where it had performed its functions for several years ; the man himself having been prevented from his daily labor, only for the last few months. -Judge Ebenezer Lane recently brought suit against the Western Baptist Educational Society, to recover $30,000 for legal services in prosecutnig a claim against the Western .Baptist Theological Institute, fbr the recov ery of property worth $200,000. The case was tried at the late term of the Superior Court of Cincinnati. Able counsel were em ployed on both sides. The jury returned a verdict of only $7,000 in favor of the Judge. It seems that juries are not disposed to allow lawyers to extort exorbitant fees from their clients. Ze" Preaching in the theatres in New York, is drawing crowds, simply from its novelty, for it is said that while the boxes of the opera house and theatres are filled, the churches that hold evening services, are show ing a beggarly account of empty pews.

DIARR.IED, On the 9th ult., by Rev. B. F. Beck, Mr. LEWIS PUTT and Miss ELIZABETH Desx, both of Stonerstown, Bedford co., Pa. "May union, love, and dear esteem, In every action glow, Till death shall sever the tender cord That binds you hero below." DIED, On the morning of the 10th inst., in McConnellstown, after a brief illness, liesar, son of Dr. Martin Orlady, aged S years and 5 months. The subject of this brief notice was one of those singu larly interesting children, whom to see, is to admire and love. Polite and manly in his manners, kind and obliging in his intercourse with his littto companions, he was be loved and cherished by them. We loved him because he was never known to indulge in the rude and violent sports too common, even with children of his age—and the tender brotherly care which he manifested towards his little sisters. His gentle, confiding disposition, combined to make him a favorite with every one who knew him. lie was a regu lar attendant upon the German Reformed Sabbath School, in his native town, and long may it be, when shall fade from our memories, the beautiful scene presented every Sabbath morning by Timmy walking with his little sisters to his seat in the school room. Long will it be ere we shall look upon that little vacant seat without a feeling of sadness that ono so young and so noble, should have been so early called away. 'Heath the silent clods of the valley, His frail little body will rest, His spirit to Christ bath ascended, To dwell in the realms of the blest. .REARkE.E TS. SATURDAY, Dec. 18.
